Unfortunately, many of us hate to exercise on a regular basis. That doesn’t mean being anti-exercise, it simply means that we can find the effort that is needed to really get physically fit is usually very inconvenient at best. If you make smart choices along the way, you can get physically fit and stay healthy, even without an official exercise regime.

One of the easiest ways to do so is to totally cut sugar out of your life. Although this is impractical to a certain extent, you cannot imagine the benefits that you can get by doing so. The easiest way for you to be able to do this is to eat according to the glycemic index. This is a list of carbohydrate foods that are arranged according to how quickly the sugars that are contained within them are dumped into our bloodstream. As long as you are eating foods that are on the low end of the glycemic index, you will be able to eat about as much as you possibly want. You will stay full in the process and you will not have the highs and lows that are experienced whenever you eat sugar.

Along with making sure that you are eating the low on the glycemic index, you should be eating a protein and a legume at every meal. Vegetables are notoriously low in calories and in order for us to keep our metabolism running strong, we need to eat calories. The protein will help you to maintain your muscle mass, even if you are losing weight and the legumes will make up for any calories that are lost as a result of you eating a lot of vegetables.

Of course, it always helps to do a little bit of exercise along with eating the proper way. You don’t need to hit the gym on a regular basis in order to experience these benefits. Just make sure that you’re moving around and try to stay as active as possible in your everyday life. The benefits of doing so will be evident whenever you look in the mirror.
